Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to achive 2D Sidescroller Fog of war vision

Hello! I'm currently working on a 2D sidescroller game, and I want to limit the vision of the player. I've tried masking out the area with a material, but the only way to mask as far as I know is with a sphere. This is not what I want. I want a small circle around the player to be lit, and where the mouse is pointing, there should be a cone that lights up the in a 45 degree angle or so. The best example I've found is from Darkwood (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OU-mR3LY-OI). I want the area the outside the lit area to be completely black.

Can you guide me in the right direction? Thanks!
